a minor holiday

What a refreshing weekend: I didn't do a lick of work, but I didn't need to -- the house was all in order, and all the shopping had been done, too.

I didn't sleep in (I don't seem capable of doing that anymore), but that's OK. Breakfasts were decadent and I enjoyed them greatly! DS1's birthday party, dinner out, coffee with the girls this morning, take-out for dinner tonight: no wonder I feel as if I've been on vacation! I haven't had to prepare a real meal in days -- and Friday's dinner was a pip since I planned it out in advance (sesame steak) and put the meat to marinate on Thursday night... it has been 3 whole days since I had to do anything of substance in the kitchen.

So, here's what I look like after such a weekend. I'm feeling relaxed, un-wound. It's nice. About the only complaint I have at the time of this photo is that my eyes are dry and I need to go find my eyedrops! I only got about 6 hours of sleep last night but it hasn't seemed to make a difference to my energy level today. My scar (now at just over 3 months) is hardly noticeable now. You can see it if you look at it, but it doesn't call attention to itself. At least I don't think so, but maybe that's just my delusion.
